Is May Next

Theresa May has accepted the resignation of Amber Rudd as Home Secretary, Downing Street has said.

Ms Rudd, who had been under pressure over the Windrush scandal and deportation targets for illegal immigrants, telephoned the Prime Minister to tell her of her decision.

She was accused of misleading Parliament over the targets, having told MPs earlier this week that her department did not have such measures, before admitting they did exist but she was not aware of them.
